    LCSD is offering 100% virtual instruction provided by an outside vendor for students determined to be medically fragile during the COVID-19 pandemic.  A medically fragile student is one whose illness and treatment frequently places him/her in extreme, precarious or life-threatening circumstances.  Enrollment will be limited to students with health or medical needs documented by a healthcare provider. Applications will be approved through the Office of the Superintendent.  See below to find out if your student falls under this criteria. Refer to Tompkins County Health Department to determine the level of community concern according to transmission rate and CDC Metric.

    You may apply by completing the Medical Eligibility for Virtual Instruction Form and by submitting the COVID-19 Health Eligibility form completed by the students' Health Provider.
